Lean to starboard


While I haven't owned my bay very long I just noticed today that it has a bit of a list to starboard, ie, it is slightly lower on the drivers side than the passenger side ( about 20mm) is this common and what's the best fix ?



I dream of a day when a chicken can cross a road without being asked for it's motive!

I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

Sorry Donn,sometimes the torsion bars do sag and can be adjusted to give the height that you want.

Could have broken torsion leaves on one side. I have seen this before. The only way to check is to take the swing arms off one side and draw the leaves out and inspect.

Ha ha AA003 you may be closer to the truth than I'd like you to be.
I'm hoping that grumble is closer to the solution than helbus. Unfortunately I'm thinking that if it's simply sagged then surely both sides would sag equally, though it is the drivers side that has sagged and that also has the added weight of the cupboards ( it's a camper ), would that make a difference ?

T3 Westies have this problem due to the weight of the cupboards.
